"Well that is certainly possible to do, but that is a matter of familiarity with recipes rather than your actual skill level as an alchemist. I personally think it would benefit you more now to learn techniques in dissecting potions."

"Right so in order to rend a potion you usually needs to separate it down into its basic ingredients, although there are some tests you can run without doing that, such as adding indicators for pH and other properties."

"There are certain chemicals that you can add and they'll change color depending on how acidic or basic the potion is. I often use one that I derive from lichen that changes between red and blue."

"I-um.. lemon juice is acidic, I'm not sure about Morpha... soap is basic, how about that?"

"Well it's not always going to be in balance; caustic tar is quite acidic, for example.

If you have an acidic potion, you have to ask yourself how it got that way: Is it a single acidic ingredient? Or was the acid produced as part of a reaction? It's just one piece of the puzzle to be considered with any of your other tests."

"Well you can try to separate it down to its base ingredients by sieving, boiling, separation by weight or what have you, or you can continue to test its reactions with various chemicals."

"Well if you know that substances A and B will react with substance Y, and that substances B and C will react with substance Z, then if something reacts with substances Y and Z it must be substance B"

"Yes! The key is understanding lots of tests you can run and being able to execute as many as them as possible without running out of sample!"

"For that, you really just want to have precise equipment; the smaller the units of measurement you can work with reliably, the smaller amounts of sample you can use."
